DVD Drive loads disk but wont load contents ???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

I am trying to install some scenery for FSX and I cannot get the installation to run.

I put the disk into the drive, the drive spins up and flashes and brings up the main menu asking me what Flight Sim I am installing to, I click on mine and press next and it sits their for a couple of minutes and the disk stops spinning.

Its like I click next and it just closes it.

I have tryed a different drive from my other pc same problem.

The disk does work because it installs on my other pc but as I don't have FSX on that pc it will not complete.

I have dragged the contents of the disk to the desktop and try to run it from their and still same problem?????

I have no idea what I am missing, This is a fresh install of windows xp with sp3.



The DVD drive installed my other games and plays movies but wont load this disk its getting annoying!

I'm assuming it's a dual layer DVD. If that's the case I would check that your DVD drive supports reading from dual layer disks. It's a long shot but might be the issue.

If that is the case, I would share your DVD drive on your other machine and then go to the IP address in your run bar. use \\\\Ipaddress then you'll see the shared DVD drive. It'll take an age to install but it could resove your issues.
